World AIDS Day – Screening and Information Event

Please come along to this event to raise awareness of the importance of Diagnosing HIV Early

On December the 1st its World AIDS Day
We’re all familiar with the terms AIDS and HIV but what do they stand for?: HIV = Human Immunity Virus and this is AIDS before it manifests itself in its most harmful form: AIDS = Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome and that means that the disease has become fully active in the body. However AIDS only breaks down your body’s natural defence systems – treatments exist that can bolster your immune system so its so important for people to make sure whether they have the disease or not as treatment is at hand.
